“I’ve been manipulating material as my profession for the last decade.  I have spent a lot of time experimenting with different materials and methods.  These include Sculpture, Woodbruning, Acrylics, Oil, Egg tempra, Wax, Collage, Carving, Sewing, Digital projection and Audio formats.  A major focus which spurs me into new mediums is trying to make art while considering the environment we live in, finding natural alternatives to otherwise toxic art materials.

These days I rarely do commissions; I’m happiest doing my work as a moment-to-moment expression – a meeting with the unknown. Life and painting are one, and each painting you see is a part of the painter.  I see creation as a totally candid expression, and therefore a worthwhile practice day to day.

Maybe that is the challenge of making art, knowing that everything about it is seen, at least for those who look. Behind our scratches on canvas and the world itself, there is a delicious truth.”   – S.T.

Stefan Thompson maintains a studio in Farrellton, Quebec.

His regular forays into the local woods provide materials and inspiration for his work.

June 30-August 2, 2015:   Leaf People   a collection of new shapings and paintings by Stefan Thompson

Those familiar with Stefan’s work know to expect the unexpected. Here is an artist who is able to peer into the lives of animals. Once you’ve seen his compositions of inter-twined figures, you’ll be enticed by this incredible symbiotic relationship. Through his beautifully rendered drawings, paintings and carvings (all made with found materials and home-made non-toxic paints), he depicts a world of creatures as they exist in all their innate wildness.

Opening Friday July 3, 7-9pm
